Bullying Statistics 2014: an Extensive Guide Released by NoBullying Today

London, UK (PRWEB) February 11, 2014

There is no doubt that bullying is a problem in U.S. schools, but just how much of a problem is it? NoBullying.com releases the latest bullying statistics 2014 guide today.

According to the guide, recent news stories are filled with tales of cyberbullying – where the target is harassed through social media or other technology – that have unfortunately resulted in victims’ suicides. The majority of bullying still takes place at school; 1 in 3 U.S. students say they have been bullied at school.

In a UCLA psychology study, published in January 2013, Psychologists studied 1,895 students at 11 Los Angeles middle schools, where students were asked to name the students who were considered the “coolest.” According to Jaana Juvonen, the lead author of the study, “The ones who are ‘cool’ bully more, and the ones who bully more are seen as ‘cool.’”

20 percent of U.S. students in grades 9-12 reportedly have experienced bullying, while 28 percent of students in grades 6-12 report the same. Experts agree that most incidences of bullying occur during middle school.

Most experts agree that bullying peaks in middle school, while children are making the transition from children to young adults. Although bullying certainly continues into high school – and even into adulthood, unfortunately – it does seem to subside with maturity.

Even so, approximately 160,000 teens reportedly skip school every day because of bullying, and 1 in 10 teens drops out of school due to repeated bullying. 83 percent of girls, and 79 percent of boys report being bullied either in school or online.

Macartan Mulligan, Co-Founder of NoBullying.com, said, “Bullying Statistics 2014 aim to keep our readers updated with what is going on in the sad world of bullying and cyberbullying. Numbers, sadly, cannot lie.”

He added that parents and teachers should make a point to educate the younger generations about the sad outcome of bullying online and off line. According to Mulligan, it is quite imperative to press for more firm laws condemning all acts of bullying and harassment.

NoBullying.com features many pages dedicated to parents, teens, teachers, health professionals as well as posts related to cyber safety and the latest news about law making concerning curbing Bullying worldwide as well as inspirational Bullying Poems and Bullying Quotes.

The website makes a habit of updating its bullying statistics and cyber bullying statistics regularly because it is essential to understand how widespread the bullying epidemic is.

He also added that anyone suffering from bullying in any form or way can always reach out to the team of NoBullying and they will be given advice on how to stand up to bullying or protect themselves online.
